The Freedom of Freelance Writing & An International Perspective on Racism
July 21, 2020
Hosted by Lori Anne Rising and “Uncle Mark” Olmstead
Veteran writer Sharon Hurley Hall talks about the world of freelance writing, and the qualities that help freelancers succeed. She discusses how freelancing has changed over the years, how she's adapted, and what it's like freelancing as a Black woman. We’ll also be exploring her recent decision to be more open about issues around racism, the articles she's published, and the response from her professional networks. And, we’ll hear about her most recent book, “Exploring Shadeism,” to learn more about what colorism is, and how it shows up in Barbados and the wider Caribbean.

Rise ‘n Shine! Not Just for Mornings Anymore.
Tuesday at 12 Noon Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Variety Channel
Our program helps create a world that works for everyone by focusing on how to rise and shine as individuals each day. We strive to remember that there are no small acts, and all choices have ripple effects. To create lasting happiness, healthy families and a thriving planet, we must challenge pre-conceived thoughts, beliefs and habits, while cultivating deeper gratitude.
Throughout the show, we talk with authors, musicians and innovators. Some guests may remind you of things that you already know but appreciate hearing again. Others may stretch the limits of what you now consider reality, presenting the opportunity for growth and transformation.
All our guests have one thing in common though: like us, they are actively engaged in helping make the world a better place in their own unique ways. They’re taking risks, rising above the past, and shining their most authentic light to help create a world where even our grandchildren’s children can thrive.
